What her clients have to say:
"Since beginning coaching my focus is clearer, and my decision making is better grounded. Phyllis reads me, responds to me and motivates me more effectively than others have. When working with me, she is totally connected to what is going on with me."
"Coaching has very much kept me focused and moving forward--even when my inclination tends otherwise!"
"Yes, I have built my business, and while achieving my goals, I also came to better understand the importance of relationships and kindness within them. And I have been able to approach new relationships with warmth."
"Phyllis is straight forward and honest. She loves what she does, and that makes talking to her feel really good."
"Working with Phyllis helped me immensely in areas I never thought I'd conquer. All of a sudden, stuff I used to dread becomes sort of easy. Like talking in a group, which I could never do. All of a sudden I'm raising my hand!"
"I have had some pivotal moments in my work with Phyllis. My most memorable was when I went from feeling an external crushing pressure to feeling like the world was completely in my hands. In that moment I realized that I am really the teller of my being."
